We love locally made, but globally read site We Heart – and now it’s had a facelift we love it even more. The site positively oozes over with clever, sleek and inventive design: from grimy but gorgeous fashion stores, to brutalist-romantic hotels, curious curation to jaw-dropping illustration, with the world’s best designers, innovators, artists and makers.

Editor James Davidson is keen to help promote the best of UK talent – especially those outside London – and showcase it on the site, which regularly wins plaudits for its curation of the very best stuff.
“I’m looking for anything creative,” Davidson tells SevenStrees. “It could be art and design, furniture, interiors, illustration… Crafts sure, but I’m really looking for cutting edge, not mumsy!”
